School, Family and The Community

As a basic principle, King’s College actively encourages effective communication between school and parents. “We endeavour to involve parents fully in the education of their children and see this partnership as an essential aspect of our care for every individual.

Our core values

Initiative: Taking it upon yourself to lead or begin a new project or activity

Dedication: Commitment and perseverance over time that enables progress

Tolerance: Empathising with people whose opinions and practices may be different from your own

Open-Mindedness: A willingness to engage with new ideas without prejudice or assumption

Honesty: Being fair and truthful, especially in challenging situations

Kindness: Going out of your way to help others without expecting anything in return

Integrity: Living your life by morals and principles whatever the challenges, whatever the situation

Independence: Demonstrating the ability to employ self-motivation and to work well without the direction of others


Opportunities for effective communication and participation exist in a wide variety of forms. On a collective level there is a regular flow of information to parents and students via newsletters, calendars of events and handbooks. From time to time the reactions, opinions and requirements of parents are canvassed via discussions, questionnaires or surveys.

Families are provided with regular written reports on individual student progress and a series of parent-teacher consultation evenings is arranged.

The Headteacher, Heads of School and teaching staff are also available, by appointment, to discuss pressing matters that cannot await the next consultation evening. Further contact between parents and staff also occurs at such pleasant annual events as the Prize-Giving and Leavers Ceremonies, and the May Fair.


The Best Guidance

Teaching and non-teaching staff will offer the best guidance to pupils as they grow and develop in the school.

For younger pupils the class teacher and learning assistant are the initial points of contact for help and advice, either through their class teaching or on an individual basis. Our dedicated pastoral and wellbeing leader ensures all pupil’s needs are planned for and met through the curriculum and assembly programme. While our onsite school Counselor takes care of the pupils emotional needs and wellbeing.

Staff training ensures that students are given the best possible advice, and our programme is supplemented by visitors from international universities in the UK, Spain and other countries. The school also organises an annual Universities Fair and teachers receive top educational consultant advice and training on latest teaching trends.


Corporate Social Responsibility

As a large international institution we seek to have a positive effect on every social environment that we come in to contact with. At King’s Group we go above and beyond our statutory responsibilities and are keen to engage in activities to further social good, beyond the interests of the company and our legal requirements. As a group we truly believe that we have a corporate social responsibility (CSR) towards the communities in which we operate. We fulfil this commitment through cooperation and collaboration in educational and social programmes. CSR also ties in with the King’s Group vision, mission and values that underpin our role in society. We support the local and wider communities as well as focusing on learning and development, not just of our pupils but also our staff.
